this recipe for a simple lemon sugar scrub and then I realized that I had everything on hand to make it. The sugar exfoliates while the lemon soothes while the coconut oil smooths dry skin. It is everything a pregnant lady needs to relax and rest and wait.
Overall my measurements were:
1 juice of lemon
the lemon zest from 2 lemons
2 cups of sugar (I wish I had raw sugar, but the refined sugar seemed to work fine)
2/3 cup of coconut oil
a couple Tablespoons of honey
I really just played it by feel and went for a consistency that I wanted.
A little jar went to our tub and another went to my sister and another went to the memory cap for when I open up that breezy bed and breakfast by the sea. One can always dream.
